It’s that time of the year again when culturepool takes to the stage to celebrate all things cultural and musical with our friends at the Above The Beaten Track festival. Although we don’t look it, we’re five years old this year and are really excited about celebrating it (hopefully in the sunshine) in The Bluecoat’s beautiful garden on the 27th August. See details below.

Before then, under the banner of culturepool @ Metal we’ll be joining Liverpool’s Philosophy In Pubs as part of Metal’s Your Station Festival (6th-20th August) on Monday 8th August and Monday 15th August @ 6pm to discuss equality. See below for full details about the events and the festival.

Through visual art, poetry, performance, writing, film and discussion the Your Station festival (6th-20th August and FREE) at Metal offers a broad range of responses to this universal theme of equality.

Is everybody born equal? Do we have equality? Is full equality possible? Is it desired? How equal are we? What about difference?

Through organised but spontaneous style discussions, these questions will be explored at two special open community forums hosted by Philosophy In Pubs.

Philosophy In Pubs have been organising and facilitating philosophical discussions in public places for the last ten years and we’re very happy to be pondering issues of equality with them as part of the festival. No academic or philosophical background is necessary. Just turn up and enjoy.

The first part of the discussion will take place on Monday 8th August followed by part two on Monday 15th August at 6pm.

The events are FREE and include a bite to eat – Join in & have your say, or you can just turn up and listen.
